Game Thread 8/20: Braves vs. Cubs

New, 465 comments

The Braves and Cubs kick off a four-game set on Thursday. Join us.

Hello, Chicago!

The Braves visit Wrigley Field over the weekend, and this season, that isn't a joy. The Cubs are among the best teams in the National League with a highly talented roster and an elite manager, and with how Atlanta has played in recent days, the prognosis isn't terribly favorable. Still, we will have fun taking in the action in prime time.

As always, let's try to get this victory together. Stay tuned throughout the evening.
